I left my Bell and Howell... In San Francisco...
Nice little big home movie about a guy, named John Rieder, not too sure if he's related to the moving people, but he alludes to a vehicle in this movie. He takes a plane to somewhere in California, goes to Sunnyvale, then an extended stay (in this home movie's terms) in SF where we certainly see a lot of the city. After that, we go to squaw valley, and then to Lake Tahoe (except we don't get there by the reel's finish), Nice titles, some great shots. This was fun.
